Pacemakers’ safety, security and reliability are of utmost importance for patient’s life quality in various daily situations. An integral characteristic of the pacemaker that depends on all of these attributes is its lifetime. In current medical practice the pacemaker’s expected lifetime is estimated relying on manufacturer’s data sheet and expert knowledge that may result in quite rough approximations if patient’s specifics are not taken into account. In this paper we perform a model-based quantitative analysis of pacemaker lifetime that takes into account patient specific factors, including general health condition, acting environment, remote reporting and others. We demonstrate that including these factors in analysis can provide drastically different results compared to that of average approximating estimates.
